In Photos: Britain’s Biggest Student House

Check out this whopping student house in Plymouth – home to 32 students


Pissed off with your housemates for failing to do their washing up or staying up late when you’ve got lectures in the morning? Spare a thought for these students at Plymouth University who share their student house with 31 others.

The Tab has the lowdown from inside the belly of the beast.

The kitchen is a free-for-all

Everything you arrive with belongs to the house. Forks and plates are priceless. Expect to see a saucepan of mouldy pasta.

We need a cleaner six days a week…

Fridges will be constantly raided by drunks

Drunk people get hungry. With 30 fridges, your food will be stolen at some point. Mayonnaise is gold, as is ketchup.

This won’t help.


The danger zone

People drink out of bins

Living with so many people means a night out is pretty much a house party, all the time.

Dressing up is the norm.


Residents enjoying the (haunted) house

People are always passed out around the house

Sometimes people nobody even knows…

Sticky carpet-bed for the night.


Even stickier kitchen floor…

Ex-housemates are always visiting

The house frequently has alumni visiting, always up to their usual antics in the sheer excitement to be back.

He likes to get naked…


…as does he.

There’s a room for everything


Perks include space for pool

And if you really want to you can get some work done as well


Everything seems like a great idea

The volume of the house makes any activity justifiable.

You’ll heavily conform to student behaviour.


The starfish

Christmas is highly anticipated

Everybody’s favourite time in the house.


The showers can be pretty intimate

The giant pad has duo-shower rooms. Apparently your first time showering in a cubicle next to the opposite sex will be weird. From then on you’ll love it.

He loves a quick peek.

And it’s a great way to make some friends

Weird, wonderful; local or foreign – with such a diverse array of people there’s somebody for everybody.

The best aspect by far.
